I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.
The usual lab value of serum iron is: 60-170 mcg/dL (micrograms per deciliter). In your case it is slightly raised. Just taking iron supplements can cause mild increase.
Normal value range of serum ferritin is:
- Male: 20 to 200 ng/mL (nanograms per millilter)
- Female: 15 to 150 ng/mL.
Yours is significantly high and can occur due to;
1) Too much iron in the body called hemochromatosis.
2) Liver disease.
So while these readings are not indicative of anything serious or significant, but these would warrant further investigative work up like liver ultrasound, liver function tests etc.
Having said that; investigations are not seen in isolation and and your complete blond counts, total iron binding capacity, B12 levels etc also would be important for conclusion. Following investigations are advised for a comprehensive picture (many of which may have been done for you):
1) Complete blood count (CBC)
2) Peripheral blood film
3) Vitamin B-12
5) Reticulocyte count
7) Thyroid-stimulating hormone
8) Serum creatinine and estimated glomerular filtration rate
9) Serum ferritin
10) Serum iron
11) Total iron-binding capacity
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
